Nature & the Sublime exhibition opens Friday, August 12 at 7:30
The work in this exhibition is by students from the course of the same title. Although based on landscape and nature, this course examines the more abstract qualities of painting. Students experiment with the application of paint on a surface to create atmosphere, mood and emotion. Natural phenomena and weather are used for their metaphoric capacities. The act of painting becomes a way to connect the artist to the natural surrounding world. Exhibition continues to Wednesday, August 17 in the Slide Room Gallery located at the lower level of VISA.
Here are images from Xane St Phillip’s Painting: Mostly Black course taught in the Spring 2011 semester.
The Diploma of Fine Arts 2011 exhibition took place in June 2011.
Sarah Houghton, Anne Marie McPartlin, Tanta Pennington and Marion Whalley were this year’s graduating students.
